Pedestrian Accident Attorneys in Sacramento

We Feel Your Pain and We Are Here to Help.

Injured pedestrian receiving aidAs one saying goes: “Stop, look, listen then cross. If not, your life could be lost.” There you were, crossing the street in the cross walk, minding your own business and out of nowhere you are struck down by a careless or inattentive driver.

Pedestrian accidents involving motor vehicles are often significant life altering events but they happen every day in California. From pedestrian heavy downtown areas to residential streets where children play, countless Californians are injured in pedestrian accidents throughout the state. The fatality rate has continued to rise since 2009.

Interestingly, each year since 2009 the highest number of deaths and injuries in pedestrian accidents was suffered by individuals between the ages of 45 and 54.

Pedestrian accidents are much more serious than other traffic accidents because the human body simply cannot withstand the impact of a motor vehicle in the same way that another motor vehicle can. An experienced Sacramento pedestrian accident lawyer knows how to present these points to insurance companies and courts to obtain maximum compensation for their clients.

What Should I Do After a Pedestrian Accident?

We understand what you are feeling after a pedestrian accident and how overwhelming it can be. We know that getting “back on your feet” is your top priority. We want to help you recover your health and self-reliance as quickly as possible. We don’t just talk the talk, we want you to walk the walk-again. It may take time, but things will get better.

You should treat a pedestrian accident the similarly to the way you would treat a motor vehicle accident:

  • Contact the appropriate law enforcement agency to respond to the scene and have them prepare a traffic collision report.
  • If you think you may have been injured in any way, call for an ambulance and seek medical treatment immediately.
  • Do not leave the scene of the accident until you have obtained information about the driver of the vehicle that struck you, including names addresses and phone numbers and automobile insurance information.
  • It is very important to get the contact information of any witnesses to the accident. This is because many motorists will claim they didn’t see the pedestrian prior to the accident. If other pedestrians were in the crosswalk for example they might be able to remember if the traffic light indicated it was safe to cross at the time you cross the street or the car that hit you stopped for a red traffic light.
  • You should not discuss the pedestrian accident or your injuries with anyone other than the Police Department emergency personnel and your doctor and lawyer. Do not speak with the driver’s insurance company regarding the accident or your injuries. NEVER submit to a recorded statement.

Hire a Team That Knows Your Rights

Pedestrians still have rights if they are struck while crossing near an intersection even if there was no marked cross walk. In fact, California Vehicle Code section 21950 (a) protects pedestrians crossing the street in marked and UNMARKED crosswalks. In addition, just like if you are struck by an uninsured driver while on a bicycle, if you are a pedestrian and the responsible party has no auto insurance, you may still be able to have your medical bills paid under the “med pay” provision of your own auto insurance policy.

Our Sacramento pedestrian accident attorneys know the rights of pedestrians and how to address them to obtain the damages our clients deserve.

These are serious accidents, do not go into court without experienced representation. Call (916) 525-7761.

  • Great attorney! Beyond my expectations

    “Great attorney! Beyond my expectations”

    Amy Gipson

  • I was referred to excellent medical providers for treatment.

    “Unsure of the extent of my injuries and the cause of my pain, I was referred to excellent medical providers for treatment.”

    Christopher W.

  • I had so many questions, concerns and he answered every one of them promptly and thoroughly.

    “John Miller is a phenomenal attorney. Mr. Miller went above and beyond what most attorneys do. I had so many questions, concerns and he answered every one of them promptly and thoroughly. I unfortunately was involved in a serious car accident that left me with a lot of medical bills and a ton of stress. When John was assigned to my case he spend endless hours (of his own time) preparing for settlement and then trial. Mr. Miller is very articulate, knowledgeable, kind and dedicated to his clients. I hope to never need a personal injury attorney ever again but if the circumstances ever presented themselves I would want John Miller by my side.”

  • I feel so fortunate that John took my case. I will be forever grateful.

    “I feel so fortunate that John took my case. I will be forever grateful. I’m a single , working Mom with teenage boys which is stressful enough. We were living in horrible conditions in Redding Ca, landlord did nothing to remedy the issues, instead they retaliated. John was so professional , understanding and kind, We met at mediation about 6 weeks after he took me on as a client, he knew the bigger picture with me wasn’t about money, it was about people being treated Ike they are garbage and don’t deserve to live in a safe environment. John did get more money for us than original quote , but the best part he said he would send a letter to the other tenants and offer to help if they needed it. I can finally sleep at night. I feel like I made a great friend. Thank you so much.”

    A.G.

  • He was patient, kind and extremely professional.

    “Mr. Miller represented me on a mold case against a former landlord, and management company. He was patient, kind and extremely professional. Although my case wasn't one of the biggie gold mine type cases that many attorneys are looking for, he treated me with respect, collegiality and was able to help me get a settlement through mediation that seemed to be the best option for the quagmire of my particular case. One should always hold negative reviews on here in perspective: often people think their cases are slam-dunks, but as we all know, the legal system is overly complex and not as straight-forward as we all would like it to be. Often cases don't turn out as we'd like them to, but I felt that Mr. Miller was above board regarding the overall merits of my case and he tried to be realistic as to the outcome. I would recommend him and/or avail of his services again.”
